        Subject: Virtual talk: A People's Atlas of Nuclear Colorado

Hello all,

Forwarding since this talk may be of interest to people on this list. It takes
place this Thursday, March 16, @2pm MT (1pm PT/4pm ET/8pm UK/9pm CET).

All best,

Thea Lindquist (she/her) | Professor and Executive Director, Center for Research
Data and Digital Scholarship <> | University of
Colorado Boulder | ORCID iD

I acknowledge that the University sits upon land within the territories of the
Weenuchiu (Ute), Tsêhéstáno (Cheyenne), and Hinono'eiteen (Arapaho) peoples.
Further, I acknowledge that 48 contemporary tribal nations are historically tied
to the lands that make up the state of Colorado.


Dear colleagues,

Please join us for a virtual talk on Thursday, March 16th at 2pm Mountain Time,
from the creators of A People's Atlas of Nuclear Colorado
a collectively authored, non-linear, multimodal Digital Humanities project built
on the Scalar platform.

With more than 40 contributors to date, the Atlas collects and cross-references
many types of knowledge, affective registers, and forms of evidence: maps,
photographs, and descriptions of major and minor nuclear sites; issue briefs
offering historical and policy contexts; artworks responding to nuclear
legacies; and scholarly essays connecting Colorado's specific atomic histories
to broader issues concerning environmental justice, technoscientific practice,
the formation of a nuclear citizenry, and the performance and projection of
hegemony. In this presentation, co-editors Sarah Kanouse and Shiloh Krupar
discuss their approach to building both the social infrastructures that created
and maintain the Atlas and the experimental interface design that resists at the
level of form the compartmentalization and black-boxing of military and
industrial nuclear discourses. The presentation will conclude with an invitation
to use the Atlas as a publication forum for student research in a wide range of
disciplines, from Art History to Science-Technology Studies.
